I'm going to the Private View this evening of the Tradescant's Orchard exhibition at the Garden Museum in Lambeth.
BELOW is a video I took on the day the Garden Museum reopened on 22nd May 2017.
I've also got photographs of the exhibits but am hoping to add a few "artists with their pics" to my planned review of the exhibition which will be posted later this week, hopefully tomorrow.
The video clearly shows how the exhibits of heritage fruit have been organised in terms of the fruit genera with sections devoted to: Hazel nuts (Corylus avellana) , pomegranates (Punica granatum), pears (Pyrus communis), cherries, damsons and plums (Prunus), apples (Malus domesticus), quince (Cydonia oblonga), gooseberries (Ribes), medlars (Mespilus germanica), mulberries (Morus nigra), strawberries (Fragaria) grapes (Vitis vinifera) and a few interesting one-offs - of which more later!
See my previous blog post - Tradescants’ Orchard: A Celebration of Botanical Art - for a list of the participating artists and links to their websites.
